Decorative Stitch Designer Pillow with Embroidery Accents & Tassels: Janome Sewing Machines

Monday, 05 November 2018 1:00

We’re always on the lookout for designer trends in retail shops, online, magazines, and more. It was during a recent search that we spotted a number of pillows with dense panels of decorative stitching, as well as many featuring embroidery accents and tassels. It was a style that had a bit of a boho feel but with a more elegant spin. Thanks to the power, precision, and flexibility of our Janome studio machines, we knew we could pull together all these trends into one fabulous pillow.

How to Make Tiny Tucks with a Quarter Inch Seam Foot

Tuesday, 24 July 2018 1:00

Narrow tucks, called pintucks when they are super-duper narrow, are most often used in the world of heirloom sewing, but they can add a lovely bit of detail to many other types of projects. You can create this look quickly and easily with your Quarter Inch Seam foot. Tucks can be sewn in thread to match the fabric for a classic tone-on-tone look. Or, switch to a contrasting thread for extra detail along the stitch line. For even more embellishment, amp up the accent with decorative stitching between tucks or directly on top of each tuck.

Products We Love: Janome AirThread 2000D Professional

Thursday, 19 July 2018 1:00

Sergers. For some, the word alone can send them screaming into the darkest corners of their sewing rooms. “The threading… not the threading… make it stop!” Well, perhaps that’s a wee bit dramatic, but the fear of threading the loopers on a serger, “Sergiothreadaphobia” as it is known in medical circles, keeps many a sewer from adding this powerful tool to their compliment of machines. If you’re a regular Sew4Home follower, you know we are an all-Janome studio, and so we are thrilled to tell you about their newest serger: the Airthread 2000D Professional – Serging Simplified. Available now at Authorized Janome Dealers in the US and Canada.

Fancy Felt Flower Appliqué Pillow: Janome America

Monday, 12 February 2018 1:00

We have a new machine in our Sew4Home studios: the Janome Memory Craft 6700 Professional. We put it through its power and precision paces with this custom felt appliqué pillow that features more twists and turns than a James Patterson mystery. We created a beautiful abstract flower design with a bit of a whimsical feel – perfect to render in the soft texture of a quality wool blend felt. If you are a beginner when it comes to appliqué, felt is the most forgiving of substrates. It’s easier to cut out, easier to place and fuse, and easier to stitch in place…. especially with the MC6900P.
